Mask Usage
We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

The food here never disappoints! Our waiter was the best!!! He was so great to point we let him make some of our food decisions and he didn’t disappoint! Great spot for a dress up date night.

The food was yummy. The etoufee should have more lump crab and the tortillas for the tacos should be fresh made.

This is my second time dining at the Hamilton and it was a great experience. Great for meetings, or get togethers with friends. A quiet setting for intimate conversations and great service!

It was okay not the best waiter. It was empty due to COVID so not sure why he kept disappearing for long periods of time.

Great restaurant with a great ambiance. The food was amazing. We had the mambo chicken wings, the blackened catfish etouffee, and the crap cake, which were delicious. Can’t wait to dine there again.

I am completely disgusted with my experience here, don’t waste your time or money. I made my reservation a month in advance and put in a special request for them to do something special with the desert because it was my boyfriends bday. We order expensive dinners each with full courses and then we watch the people next to use receive desert with a candle and they’re singing. We order desert expecting the same treatment and instead a food runner shoved the desert onto the table without a word. The server never even said happy bday. I will never return to this establishment and considering we had the option of any restaurant in DC for his bday I am so disgusted with my choice of the Hamilton. Do not ever spend your bday here.

Covid19 has forced the Hamilton to shrink it’s menu. It is not as expensive but still exceptional!

I was wowed by the beautiful room, filled with Hunt Slonem original oils. Simply stunning. We were at a safe distance from other diners, which was comforting.

ALL the food looked and tasted delicious.

The only disappointment was the slow service. It seemed to take too long at every step of the way. We received water before glasses, and had to wait (too long) for those glasses to be delivered... we received food before silverware and napkins, and that had to be requested... and waited for. Long after we finished our meal we were asked about dessert, and waited (too long) for the menus to be delivered. Given that there were only three occupied tables in the dining room, I was frustrated.

You never know what is going on behind the scenes, but the people seated minutes after our group of four were long gone by the time we were served our desserts.

I am looking forward to returning. If I happen to be somewhat rushed (as I often am during the work-day), I will let the server know ahead of time. Highly recommend ALL the desserts. Being a fan of bread pudding, I can definitely recommend The Hamilton.

The food was amazing and everything was well seasoned. I didn’t know it was a New Orleans styled menu. It was good would recommend for a date night.

Order app and never revived it. Once we told the staff she told us it will be rushed out. Still did not get it, she told us, she’s not gonna charge us since we never got it thank goodness for that I guess they were going to charge us even if we didn’t get the food worst service ever

Had two wonderful meals on a weekend trip. One for dine in and one for takeout. Service was excellent on both occasions and food was tremendously delicious. We had steaks, salads, pasta and it was great. Will definitely come back when we are in town again.

I understand the Covid considerations, and appreicate them, but the waiters need to get a little closer to the tables when one is order.
Otherwise, fine service and food.
